Over the course of a year, both web visitors and a jury composed of technical experts, university professors and editors selected the most innovative products within the electronics market based on several factors including innovation, availability and business significance.

The Innovation Awards were determined in two phases: first a selection of the three most innovative products across 12 categories with 12 products per category (Power systems, Embedded, MPU & MCU, EDA & Software, Opto & Led, T&M Instruments, Display, IC & Power Analogic, Passives & Sensors, FPGA & DSP, Memory, Connectors & Electromechanics). Then two special awards were selected by the jury: the “Best Innovation Award” and the “Special Jury Award”. The award ceremony took place at the Museum of Science and Technology ‘Leonardo da Vinci’ of Milan where Enea had the pleasure to receive two awards, one of which was the “Special Jury Award.”

OSE Multicore Edition features a groundbreaking kernel design that blends the advantages of both traditional Asymmetric Multiprocessing (AMP) and Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP). This hybrid approach offers designers of advanced multicore processor-based embedded systems maximum flexibility, scalability and performance.  OSE Multicore Edition is gathering wide acceptance in number of vertical markets including telecom infrastructure and medical devices. 

“We are thrilled to have given the Jury Award to an innovative product such as OSE Multicore Edition, a real-time operating system which mixes Asymmetric Multiprocessing with Symmetric Multiprocessing in a single product offering thus delivering a level of scalability and ease of use in line with embedded systems market requirements.” said Mario Malcangi, Professor at the University Politecnico of Milan and a member of the Jury.
